The majority of learner drivers agree that Hazard Perception test is the most difficult part of the UK theory test. It is especially difficult for unexperienced drivers to spot a developing hazard on time and react to it accordingly. The more you practise mock hazard perception clips the better you get at it. 

Hint: when you notice a developing hazard, click not just once, but a few times with a short gap in between. This way you will ensure that your first click was not ‘too early’, and your result is recorded. However, if you click too many times in a row, the system with think you are trying to cheat and won’t give you any points.
